  1. Fantastic experience with Darren, Guildford Driving Instructor!

    Found Darren online and was overwhelmed at the amount of time and care taken on his website. Darren made me feel comfortable and exciting about driving, and always gave feedback in a positive manner. He is always relaxed and never rushes anything, whether that's driving or understanding the concepts. So please I went with Darren! Am now driving happily around by myself, very big thank you!

  2. Passed my driving test 1st time with Guilford driving instructor

    I felt lessons where worth every penny as he taught me to drive safely , not just how to pass my test! He had a flexible lesson structure and helped build my confidence. Visual resources where used throughout which helped me understand what he meant. Very professional service which I will gladly recommend!

  3. Passed my Driving Test with Guildford Driving Instructor (First time - 0 minor faults)

    Darren is a great driving instructor, who I would definitely recommend! Before driving lessons I'd had a lot of experience with racing my own kart and had good knowledge about driving in general. However it was Darren who taught me that driving on the road is very different to driving a kart, and the huge responsibility it involves. He was very relaxed, friendly and gave clear instructions. He taught me how to be a safe, controlled and more confident driver. His experience and knowledge of what the test involves really helped, pointing out key "hotspot" areas that you may have in your test, and the possible test routes. Thanks to him I passed first time, with no minor faults at all! I would highly recommend Darren to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

  4. Driving Instructor

    I'd put off driving for years, but after reading Darren's reviews online I decided to book a lesson. It was the best thing I could have done. After a number of bad experiences with previous instructors, I was a very nervous driver. From day one he made it his mission to build my confidence, not letting me give up when my nerves took over or doubt set in. After a number of lessons I not only felt I could one day pass, but actually started to enjoy driving. He went out of his way to send me videos and links that could help with me understanding the why behind what he was teaching me. Nearer the test we worked on building up my confidence, so I could not only drive, but believed I was a good driver. It absolutely worked- I had my test this morning and passed! Not only that but I have spent the past week being excited to show off my skills to the instructor, but I didn't feel nervous at all. I would say to anyone who is thinking about lessons with Darren - go for it! I couldn't have picked a better, more patient and fun instructor. I owe Darren a huge thank you for helping me to finally ditch the public transport!

  5. Driving Lessons through to Test for Intermediary Learner

    Having experienced two driving instructors before teaming up with Darren, I'd experienced very different approaches to teaching/learning - Darren's way worked! Punctual and professional but very easy-going and reassuring in terms of adapting to my learning style. My advice is to avoid classic text book driving instructors and to choose an instructor that fits with you; not the other way around - Darren was spot on and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.

  6. Passed my Driving Test

    Darren taught my husband a few months ago and he passed 1st time. I asked Darren to teach me but he said he was going away for a few months. So I decided that wait for him. Darren contact me to say he was back and ready to start teaching me and we started. Darren is everything my husband said and more. He is a very good instructor and very patient. He helped my pass my test 1st time and I am very happy that I decided that wait for Darren.

  7. Driving Instruction

    Darren has a great way of making the routines feel natural and instinctive, nothing is rushed and you will never feel panicked. At any time if you have queries and any little questions he will always answer them fully and informatively. I would very much recommend using Darren as a driving instructor.

  8. Driving lessons and pass my driving test

    Darren is a fantastic driving instructor. He is very supportive and he made sure I understood everything at all times. I thought learning to drive would be hard for me as I am a very nervous person but from the first lesson Darren made me feel at ease. He explain everything to me so well I could understand what I had to do and then we practiced it until I could do it by myself. I could always ask Darren if I had a question and sometimes the same question over and over about the theory and driving but he never minded explaining it to me again. Darren helped my pass my theory test first time and my driving test first time. Darren has giving me so much confidence I don't feel nervous at all when driving on my own. Thank you Darren I couldn't have done it without your help! Guildford's number 1 driving instructor!

  9. Passed Driving Test

    Darren is an excellent driving instructor who is full of enthusiasm and does all he can to help people pass. I had a regular 2 hour lesson once a week until I was ready for my test. Although I didn't pass first time Darren filled me with confidence to keep trying and answered all of my questions and worries. Darren did all he could to make the experience very enjoyable and as easy as possible. Any problems I had with lessons he sorted and is very adaptable to specific needs if any. An amazing teacher and would definitely recommend.

  10. Passed my Driving Test with Guildford Driving Instructor

    Darren is a brilliant driving instructor – very knowledgeable and makes the effort to get to know you and how you learn best. I’d taken lessons with another instructor about 5 years ago, but never felt confident enough to take a test. Darren has made me enjoy driving. He has a very calm, relaxed teaching style, and explains everything clearly (especially manoeuvres, which I’d always struggled with). I came to feel confident that I can drive safely and independently. Darren is flexible with lessons, and very fair and honest about how many you actually need. In the lead-up to my test Darren was incredibly helpful, with longer lessons and lots of support. I was nervous, but felt very well prepared, and I passed first time. I’m really grateful to Darren and couldn’t recommend him more!
